one book, the book he should read is _Peopleware_ by Tom DeMarco and
Timothy Lister. IMO Scrum, XP, TDD, FDD, etc. are all tools that
attempt to move a software team into Peopleware territory.
To paraphrase Hillel: What is hateful to Peopleware do not do to your
software team; the rest is just commentary. :-)
